Photos that changed the world

“Photographs do more than document history—they make it.” At TED University, Jonathan Klein of Getty Images showcases some of the most iconic images shared to the public, and talks about what happens when a generation sees an image so powerful it can’t look away—or back.

New York, Pixelated

Uploaded by onemoreprod. – Discover more animation and arts videos.

In his new short titled “Pixels”, Patrick Jean makes NYC the epicenter of a straight up, old school pixelated odyssey – of sorts. He takes it back to the 80′s, paying homage to classic video games such as King Kong, Pacman, Space Invaders, Tetris, and yes, that was Frogger making his way through NYC traffic.

What Do You See?

Cruz Roja – Vagabundo from Javier Iñiguez de Onzoño on Vimeo.

This campaign by 4 students from the Miami Ad School in Madrid is worth a gander:

Every time we go to museums, we spend hours in front of paintings. Not just because of what is on the canvass, but also because of what is behind them.

Thanks for sharing Anaís:)

Michael Bierut Talks Clients

2010/01 Michael Bierut from CreativeMornings on Vimeo.

In January, Michael Bierut was invited to speak at SwissMiss’ Creative Mornings. His insight on the issue of “clients” is a must see for any working designer. It’s an hour long, but well worth your time.

Thanks Tushar, for sharing

Cornel West’s Open Letter to President Obama

Cornel West’s note to Obama – January 20, 2010
by Ladypolitik

Acclaimed writer and educator Cornel West shares his thoughts of the state of the nation with an open letter to President Obama. It has just been a year since he took office and people have put him under a microscope since day 1. Yes, things could be better—but we would like to ask were people this critical of Bush this early on? Cornel’s poetry as always is critical and respectful, but a bit self-serving.
